Thanks, Nichole!

Hey!

And a late but still, happy Monday to y'all the other side of the pond as it's practically Tuesday over here!!! Now it's the last time I can say 'happy Monday' for a while because as of next Monday I'm back to school!
Anyways enough about work! I'm so happy that I get to be a part of something special today! Over on the PTI forum, we're holding a special PTI Blog Hop to show our appreciation of the one and only, Nichole Heady (my stamping idol! Seriously, this lady oozes more talent outta her pinky than I could ever dream of having!) The idea is to make a Thank You card as your way to say, well, Thanks!
So Nichole, if you're reading this, thank you so much for the inspiration you provide not only to me but to everyone. Not many people are capable of making me physically drool over my keyboard through sharing their creations but you certainly do! I admire not only how creatively talented you are, but how you successfully juggle being a Mother, a Wife, and a Business Woman too! When I grow up, (if I grow up!) I'd love to be half of what you are today!

I also tried to be super crafty and sneak in a Papertrey Peeps Challenge with this colour combo too. I'm so sorry to the Peeps that I've been a naughty blogger/stamper and although I thought I would have caught up on the challenges over summer, I still feel nowhere near up to date!

So thanks, Nichole for the job you do, and thanks, Peeps for not telling me off LOL!

Catch ya later!
